Product Specific Details
HaYesod: The Foundation — Lesson Overview
Lesson One: Our Foundation—His Torah
An introduction to the concept of Torah, the five books of Moses. Session One teaches students that Torah means "instruction." It is God's loving instruction for his people—the wedding vows of the sacred marriage between God and his people.
Lesson Two: Our Birthright—His Salvation
When we become believers in Yeshua, we receive a new identity. We receive the righteousness of Messiah through his salvation. Now we have a responsibility to live it out. Session Two explores the practical implications of being a new creation in Messiah.
Lesson Three: Our Connection—His Covenants
The Bible is the story of a series of covenants. New covenants do not cancel previous covenants; they build on top of one another. Session Three gives students an overview of the biblical covenants to see how everything fits together.
Lesson Four: Our Rabbi—His Teachings
It is one thing to know Yeshua as savior; it is something else to know him as teacher. Session Four introduces students to the Torah teacher, Rabbi Yeshua of Nazareth, in his first-century Jewish context. Discover the Jewish background to the Gospels and the Torah teachings of Yeshua.
Lesson Five: Our Call—His Yoke
What does it mean to be a disciple? Session Five brings students back to a first-century Jewish understanding of discipleship. Find out why keeping Torah and discipleship to Yeshua are inseparable.
Lesson Six: Our Identity—His Apostle
What about the Apostle Paul? Did he convert to Christianity and forsake Torah? Did Paul teach against keeping Torah? Session Six introduces students to Paul, the misunderstood man, and the major issues that defined his mission.
Lesson Seven: Our Mail—His Letters
The letters of Paul can be hard to understand. On the surface, some passages sound like they are anti-Torah. Session Seven clarifies several key passages in Paul's epistles by placing them back into their original context.
Lesson Eight: Our Calendar—His Appointments
The Torah spells out appointed times for meeting with God: times of prayer, holy days, and sacred festivals. Are these relevant for believers? Session Eight gives students a quick overview of the biblical calendar.
Lesson Nine: Our Boundaries—His Commandments
The commandments of Torah are not burdensome or beyond our reach. Session Nine demonstrates the simple wisdom of living according to God's instructions by highlighting a few sample commandments.
Lesson Ten: Our Walk—His Path
Are you ready to take hold of your rich biblical inheritance? Torah is for all of God's people. Session Ten explores the relationship of Christianity and Judaism while revealing the place of the believer in the midst of the people of Israel.
